About Me | CV (6/2018)

I am an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science Department and an affiliated faculty in the Goergen Institute for Data Science at University of Rochester. Before that, I was a Visiting Researcher at ARM Research. I graduated from The University of Texas at Austin. I spent the last year of graduate school as a Research Fellow at Harvard University.

My research interests are computer architecture and software design to enable next-generation mobile systems that are energy-efficient, intelligent, and deliver desirable end-user experience. To that end, my recent work focuses on domain-specific systems for visual computing and Web technologies.

I am looking for Ph.D. students! If you also like hacking software and hardware systems and enjoy teaching your colleagues something new everyday, please read this and send me an email.

I taught CSC 252 Computer Organization in Spring 2018, and will be teaching CSC 572 Mobile Systems Architecture in Fall 2018. Stay tuned!
